1935 March - To Dragma

Vol. XXX, No. 3

The ancient jewelry craftsman, following in the steps of his father and grandfather before him, prided himself on his handiwork which stood alone in its high quality and fine craftsmanship.
Just as in the manufacture of your own fraternity badge today, the old craftsman was satisfied only with the best materials obtainable and through his years of ex- perience put forth his skill to fashion fine gold, silver, and precious stones into jewelry which was truly beautiful and which would be a worthy symbol of all that is fine, permanent, and beautiful.
Balfour craftsmen today create your fra- ternity badges, keys, and rings, adding those finishing touches by hand which set such jewelry on a plane high above ordi-
nary insignia and personal accessories a class alone in quality.

[early capitalism in America. Although in re- cent years a number of historians have treated American history from the standpoint of its economic aspects, little attention has been di- rected to the growth of capitalism as an insti- tution and particularly as it was related to a similar development in Europe. Moreover, al- though some studies have been made of par- ticular aspects of economic life in the colonial ^period and the years after the war, the years fot the Revolution itself have been neglected. It was these years, when the old trade struc- ture was shattered and there were new de- mands and needs as well as unusual oppor- tunities f o r speculative enterprise, that appear to have been of special significance as a stim- ulus to the appearance in America of the techniques of capitalism which were already

"As I have already indicated, eight months, September 1933 to June 1934, have been de- voted to research on my thesis topic. Several weeks of the summer were used in classify- ing and organizing the material. At present, an article intended for publication entitled 'The Structure of Franco-American Trade Relations, 1777-1783' is under preparation. I n addition, several chapters introductory to the main body of the study were written last year in Washington for a Seminar.
"Although the research for my thesis can- not be carried on here in Chicago, the dis- sertation will be written under the direction of the Department of History of the Liniver- sity of Chicago. I have also the privilege of the advice and assistance of Professor Fred- erick L. Nussbaum at the University of Wy- oming, to whose field mine is closely allied.
"Because of the new material which I am presenting and the interest which is being manifested of late in my general field, I ex- pect that the thesis when finished will be pub- lished.

While working with Requa Jackson, in 1922,
she was sent to Rancho Santa Fe by them to superintend construction of some buildings they had designed. Rancho Santa Fe, by the way, is one of California's most exclusive and unique communities. Lying between moun- tains and sea, in a protected area of rolling hills, its presents a beautiful sight of avocado and citrus groves, dotted with colorful Span- ish haciendas. After several months she was transferred to the Santa Fe Land and I m -

the voting power rested in the hands of the (property owners instead of the registered pub- lic. This covenant provided for an art jury of three members whose duty it is to pass ton the design of all buildings or structures. Lilian has served as secretary to this art jury
since its beginning.
I Lilian has had many interesting commis- sions, but one of the most unusual, I think, is that of doing the Bing Crosby group. Mr. Crosby bought an old Spanish grant which included several old adobe buildings. Lillian superintended the reconstruction of these, to make them usable as guest houses, and then she planned a beautiful home for him to be built out of real adobe bricks and designed similar to the original hacienda. Her office in Santa Fe is ideal for residential work there, but her fame has spread afar and she has had work in Los Angeles, Riverside and San Diego tounties. She even designed a California
house to be built in Connecticut.
She tells us that no architect's life is tran- quil, for something unusual is happening at «1 times and in as many places as there is Work being done— new inventions, new prices,
new building laws, misinterpretation of work- ing drawings and specifications, carelessness of workmen, lack of coordination between the various branches of the work and the human element on all sides. It is a work no definite portion of which one can ever be satisfied with but which always holds out a beckoning hand to attempt to reach perfection.
The only sad part of this Rancho Santa Fe business is that it keeps Lilian so busy that we in San Di£go very rarely see her. It is about thirty miles from San Diego so she is not able to get in to many of our evening meetings, but I assure you we are all thrilled when she can come and give us some of her pep and enthusiasm. Once you meet Lilian, you can hardly wait to have her design your dream house, because you just
know that it will fill your fondest hopes and desires.
When you all come to San Diego to the California Pacific Exposition in 1935, you must be sure and take the trip to Rancho Santa Fe and call on Lilian, and I am sure you will be just as enthusiastic about her and her artistic work as are we.

changes would bring beauty of overtone to abackground of heavy, sombre, immutablemusic of sea and weather. Were she artistinstead of writer we might expect her to drawwith infinite detail. I like best to think of heras a weaver of Gothic tapestry for MaryPeters is, to me, a lovely Milie Fleur tapestryof the late nineteenth century and early twen-tieth. M any o f the characterizations are ofpeople whom I know now but whom 1 havenever met. They are as distinct as the figuresin the tapestry, set apart by lines which keepthem separate from their background and yetwoven so completely into it that they couldbelong to no other part of the world. Thereare myriads of finely drawn details, brightas the tiny flowers of the tapestry, but so in-trinsically a part of the whole that they, too,belong only to it. Through the book as acrossthe hanging runs a repeated motif, the after-glow of sunlight on the sails of a disappear-ing ship; the brilliant whiteness of Cadiz;the tiny, bewildered face of the kitten.
Mary Ellen Chase is an essayist, a com-mentator on life, a chronicler of the passingof time in Maine places. Mary Peters pre-sents her at her best. I found whole sectionsof the book, which, with little explanation,could be taken out in entirety. Sarah Peters'philosophy of life belongs to a woman whoknew the futility of complaint against forcesbeyond human control. Only with such a phi-losophy could she have lived in such com-pleteness after her body became helpless.Mary is like her, influenced by the samepowers of water, storm, sun and calm. Tous whose lives have been lived on prairiesor in places where ponds are called lakes and creeks, rivers, Sarah and Mary are strangers;Ellen and Mrs. Kimball belong to our im-patient, much-ado-about-nothing environment.A vast reading public has chosen MaryPeters as a "best seller." I inquired about itspopularity at several rental libraries. Onelibrarian told me that young people like itbest, "because of its dark mood." Anothersaid older people enjoyed it most because theyhad lived through the change in life which the coming of steam, the telephone, and the automobile brought. Be that as it may, MaryEllen Chase has written a splendid book and that the public has read it must be a satisfac-tion to the woman who has sought to teach students to read less and absorb more.
While her book is enjoying popularity in this country, Miss Chase is in Cambridge,England, on sabbatical leave from her dutiesat Smith College.

[AKCH, 1935 11 Ten Days in Italy

I SUPPOSE the most exciting part of the
year in Europe was my Easter holiday open to the public. She took three of us
most beautiful cities in the world, with it* wide streets, lovely white houses and magnif- icent gardens. One of the girls was fortunate enough to be given special permission to visit the Vatican gardens which are not usually

The trip was arranged by the American Uni- versity Union in Paris for American and Canadian students. A group of twelve signed up, and most of us were taking courses at the Sorbonne in Paris, so we were more or less acquainted before we started out.
The date of our departure from Paris was the night of March 25. My American chum and I managed to get off to a good start by nearly missing the train. But we got aboard
: just as it started. W e had two compartments , between the twelve of us, but, of course, there KIS no room to stretch out. One of the girls, however, ingeniously suggested the bag- gage racks as beds, so all night we took turns climbing up there and sleeping in rather cramped positions—with our weather eye out,
museum and art gallery, but also the magnif- icent formal private gardens of the Pope.
On Thursday we left at nine o'clock for Naples and arrived about noon. At last I coidd really believe I was in Italy. Rome is such a modern city that it might be found in another country. But surely Naples is typi- cally Italian. Even on the cold rainy day we arrived, the washing was suspended across the narrow streets and alley-ways in true Italian fashion.
Friday was, I think, the most enjoyable day of all the trip, for that was the day we went to the island of Capri. When we set out it was rather dull, but once we had left the harbor the clouds began to break and before long the sun was shining brightly and the Mediterranean had taken on the wonderful

• but soon forgot about that when we began grossing the French Alps. They were star- tlingly beautiful in the morning sunlight, 'towering up into a sky of unbelievable blue. The little villages nestling at the foot of the
huge peaks were so picturesque.
After passing through lovely fertile farming
country, we at last reached Genoa and the •Mediterranean. The trip down the coast from Genoa was very lovely. On either side of us were beautiful Italian villas surrounded by luxuriant gardens. Behind were the moun- tains, and the hills were covered with olive orchards. I couldn't overcome the impression that the country we were passing through was stage scenery. The Italian houses are painted
tin the prettiest pastel shades. We even saw mauve houses with yellow shutters. W e passed through Genoa and Pisa, catching a fleeting glimpse of the Leaning Tower and finally reached Rome about midnight.

The: railroads make special rates in some cases, as you will see from the list of special trips, and later on in the traveling season there may be some rates further reduced.

The Merchandise Mart has nearly ninety- two acres of floor space. It is here that the National Broadcasting Company studios are located and are opened to visitors through su- pervised tours. At Lincoln Park and North Avenue is the Chicago Historical Society, which has man}* interesting exhibits and now has Mrs. Thome's famous miniature rooms which should be seen if wc have not done so at the Fair.
Another point of interest is Chinatown at Wentworth and Cermak Road. This area is devoted to Chinese for their businesses and professions. The drug store, city hall, and res- taurants as well as the shops are all of great attraction.
If we have money to spend, St. Hubert's Grill on Federal Street gives us every phase of an English menu served in elegant old English style. The Red Star Inn is unique in its German cuisine, and Ireland's is one of the finest fish houses in Chicago.

n Brought-On"
Will it seem too belated to tell you about Christmas now? I do want you to hear about .Jt and this is my first opportunity. I assume
your permission!
\" To begin with Beech Fork: If that Christ- fjnas party was not well-staged, it was not for
lack of planning. Nurse Stevenson had been fbusy for weeks, getting her plans worked out. •Weeks did I say? Months would be nearer
the truth, for it was last fall when she began |singing Christmas carols with the children, 'getting them in form for the occasion. For flhe Christmas party itself, the plan was to
spread things out over two days, so that the [crowds could be more easily accommodated. The children on certain creeks were told to come on the Saturday morning before Christ- mas, those on other creeks on Saturday after- fiioon, still others on Monday morning and the final lot Monday afternoon. The men with 'wagons and teams promised to bring in as ;tnany of the far-away "least ones" as possible.
On Friday, Miss Stevenson and her maid baked a thousand gingerbread men for the Saturday party. Sunday the process was re- peated, to take care of the Monday crowd.
lA neighbor supplied gallons and gallons of milk (to apply as payment on a hospital bill), which was the making of the cocoa. The big clinic waiting-room was transformed with
[greens, Christmas trimmings and a bewilder- ingly beautiful tree. The toys were divided into four lots, to make sure of the four groups' sharing alike. The room adjoining the waiting-room was decked out like a veritable toyshop. Dolls, tea sets, toy furniture and the like held sway on one side of the room. Knives, balls, marbles, harmonicas and drums filled a huge table. Nearby the mechanical toys made a brave showing (and every miniature motorcar is a "truck" in the eyes of these out-of-the-way children to whom a motorcar is still a miracle and trucks more familiar than any other kind, while a toy "truck" is a gift that would put almost any child in rapture!). A broad shelf arranged with beads, handkerchiefs, purses, books, was the special
'Corner for the larger giris. The toddlers had their collection of blocks, rubber balls, funny animals on wheels and so on, which proved t<> be one of the most generally amusing
^assortments in the room. And finally there Were the things for the babies, warm woolies
first and foremost, squeaky rubber dolls, rat- tles and stuffed animals. Near the door was an enormous carton filled with bags of candy, to be given the children as they went out.
Time was when the children in this dis- trict, if asked to sing Christmas carols, launched forth on "Nellie Gray," the tragedy- haunted phrases of a mountain ballad, or a camp-meeting song dwelling on the horrors of the Judgment Day. This time, it was "O Little Town of Bethlehem," "Joy to the World," "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing"! Accompanied by the reed organ (a gift to the center from an old lady in the neighbor- hood) with Miss Stevenson playing the air, the childish faces grew radiant as "Silent Night" was sung through from beginning to end without a note missed or a word for- gotten. Then there were "pieces" and more singing and hot cocoa and gingerbread and no end of gay laughter and friendly banter. Several of the neighbor women who had come in to help, the ever-present indispensable courier and Miss Stevenson's incomparable lit- tle maid grew busier and busier as the crowd increased, as if they were being visibly wound up so that they would automatically spin fast enough to meet the thousand and one require- ments of the moment. And over all Miss Stevenson presided, everywhere at once and so gay in her most frivolous frock as to be quite unfavoring herself—or so the folks said by way of expressing the contrast between this Miss Stevenson and the Miss Stevenson of the usual blue or whiteuniforms.
Soon the toyshop itself was open and be- came at once the center of interest, though games and singing went on apace in "the big room." For lack of space, the children went in relays into the toy-room to select each his gift—six or seven youngsters at a time, or often a mother with her whole brood so that she could help the little ones. A toy for each child, warm clothing for at least some members of each family and a bag of candy
for everybody.
Saturday morning's crowd was loath to give up the party, even after everyone had had his turn in the toyshop. Children tended to settle down to play with their toys. The young folks went on with the fun in the waiting room. Grown-ups stood 'round and admired the children's "tricks" (toys), showed the children how to make the mechanical toys go, cracked jokes with each other and munched

which kept the party going were both visibly and audibly tired. It was amazing to see how the excitement and joyous enthusiasm brought by each new batch of children seemed at once to infect with new energy these bodies that had hitherto seemed little more than a col- lection of tired arms, legs and heads! Ginger- bread, cocoa, carols, banter and laughter and a continual sharing of the children's joy in their gifts: Saturday morning's crowd; Sat- urday afternoon's crowd; Monday morning's crowd; Monday afternoon's crowd—all of them got both the atmosphere and the stuff of a real party. Altogether almost five hun- dred children shared in Beech Fork's Christ- mas party, or should one say parties? As for the grown-ups, no one had even time to count them!

At Wendover we tried this year forfirst time the method of allowing the chilto select their own gifts. Two office-the living room were preempted to givroom for this arrangement.

Perhaps it is something of bothonly remember feeling a bit sad, as welamused, at seeing, over and over, all the in the toy-room lined up before the couchThe Confluence party this year was perhaps
less like the others than usual. Confluence's
waiting room is far too small for the Christ-
mas crowd and one year the porch collapsed
trying to share the load. This year the nurses
got permission to use the "church house,"
which is conveniently near the center of things
and the most commodious building in the
neighborhood. The teachers in the district and
several other young i>eople made up a com-
mittee to help with preparations. The Christ-
mas wagons had hardly arrived before every-
one was busily sorting toys, selecting them
for the various children, labelling them and which the dolls were displayed, solemthen making them up into still larger pack- ages according to families, to facilitate the actual distribution. The preacher from "yon side of the hill'' was asked to be present and make a short talk appropriate to the occasion. The final program of the day was settled upon. The church house was decorated. The tree was set up and trimmed. With all the ready helpers, everything could hardly be got through with before the day f o r the party arrived—"Christmas Eve Day"!
And when the day arrived, practically the whole countryside turned otil for the event. Those who had thought the church house so amply large were amazed to see it fill up to the very door. Everything went off beauti- fully, down to the final votes of thanks; to the private owner of the church house who had lent the building; to the preacher who had presided over the occasion; to the young peo- ple who had worked day and night to get things ready; and to the children's friends all over the country who make it possible for us to give our children a real Christmas.

ing for girls and boys who do not wish to take cash. As members of art and sewing

I f any sorority membefeels that for health posture, grace, mannersbeauty, democracy, etc., the principal is wrongshe will be glad to hear!
The "self-starting" student activities are regarded as more than supplements to the academic work. We are coming to feel quitegenerally, as one principal said recently, "Iwe were forced to choose between the academic essentials and the newer activities, I'dsave the activities." Fortunately we do nohave to choose. Our records and our observations prove that academic work is rated higheand its standards more easily maintained andraised because of the self-starting and selfresponsible activities among students.
Our school placement bureau is an educa-tional and economic necessity—it effects cooperation among employers, students, parentsand faculty. Even older people take advantage of this service. This service finds positions which students can fill, helps employerswhile helping students and remembers enoughabout each to help students make the nexmove up and to help employers find new em-ployees to fit their jobs.

There are vocational opportunities beckoning for girls competent as hair-dressers and manicurists. The training forone's own living also qualifies this course.
In our Edison High building there is an-other kind of school which we are glad tohave because we believe it symbolizes a sectorof education that is bound to expand. I referto the continuation school which has employedchildren under 17 years old four hours aweek for Civics, English and some hand workMany students of education think that thesecondary school and college of the futurewill be progressively patterned on the con-tinuation school; will be "testing stations" and"reconditioning stations" rather than "fillingstations."

economically and socially valuable. That it increases receptivity and ambition in academic studies is believed by our teachers.
The same is found true of boys in the auto- mobile shop who repair real automobiles for real people; by boys in the carpenter, print, machine and electrical shops who, while learn- ing, make real things for use in the city's schools. These classes saved the city last y e a r $6,100.
Both girls and boys have a bookbinding course given by a workman artist furnished us by William Edwin Rudge, founder of the shop famous for beautiful printing and bind- ing. Besides gaining a many-sided training in precision, form, color and taste, these stu- dents did work last year for the schools that had a market value of $1,000.
Our Nurses' Preparatory Course gives a thorough preparation f o r entering hospital training. I t includes, among other subjects, hygiene, household science, food selection, nutrition, dietetics, biology, chemistry, occupa- tional therapy, typewriting and office practice. This training not only lays an excellent foun- dation f o r hospital training, but the course also prepares f o r greater success in the home. Mount Vernon has the distinction of being the first city in the state to give this kind of course.

"THOSE HAVING LAMPS will pass them on
to others." This short sentence sums up quite clearly, I think, the meaning of the light »©f Alpha Omicron Pi; that is, that the pur- pose and ideals of this fraternity shall be kept constantly before us and shall be carried on from one generation to the next. True it is, that this light shall, no doubt, in the future, • as it has in the past, change in its outward ap-
pearance with the advancement, progress o f the age—but, regardless of the superficial and apparent alteration, its purpose will forever be the same. Our ideals of fraternity, friend- ship and good fellowship and thought of so- cial progress will always remain as they are now.
Thus with the humble candle of love and friendship did our Founders start burning the light of this great international sisterhood
•Of ours which has become more powerful with the passing of the years. Through its various stages of growth from the oil lamp and gas light up to the present stage of the electric light, it has constantly become more dazzling in effect, but never more lovely and whole- some than the soft glow of that first candle light.
. We undergraduates are the present light of this fraternity, and our place in this organi- zation is to give to it new energy and new material to keep this light burning surely and constantly. W e are to reinforce it and give it new life each year, but above all, we must see to it that in the bright glare of the great spot- light in which we are now standing, we do not allow it to blind us to the extent that we fail to see the true principles of service and love upon which this organization was found-
led. We must remember that we have pledged ourselves to keep forever burning the light of Alpha Omicron Pi, and that we have no right by any of our thoughts or actions to dim it in any way or make it any less beautiful. We are a part of that light forever.
Perhaps to the alumnae of the fraternity, our efforts, fraternity spirit, and loyalty do not seem to be as sincere or in any way the same as those exemplified when you were in school. Let us keep in mind, however, the fact that as time goes on, our social and eco- nomic life becomes more and more compli-
cated and the light before which we stand is not the soft gleam of the light of bygone days, but a light which is so strong and pierc- ing that it penetrates deeply and lays bare our every motive and action. Let us also bear in mind the fact that each active chapter has a greater burden than the one before it and even
though our motives and actions may seem to be different they are essentially the same.
Living under such a light which reveals al- most our very souls, it behooves us, therefore, to take our burden of carrying on for the glory of Alpha Omicron Pi more seriously than ever before. Let those who come after us say that although we were blinded by too bright a light—that still we did not lose sight of the principles of Alpha Omicron Pi. Let them see that our own inner light so reflected that it brought nothing but credit, beauty,
and love to our fraternity.

To DRAGNation Will Be Controlled by Con- high standard of living, plenty of space, risent of the Governed, says Mrs. Howorth, When Intelligence Is Applied at Home
-4- "WHEN THE American people, led by the educated and intelligent citizens, apply in- telligence to governmental affairs, beginning with the home precinct—then and not until then will the consent of the governed actually control our destiny," Mrs. Joseph M. Howorth (K) of Washington said yesterday in con- cluding an address on "The Consent of the Governed," which she delivered at a meeting of Lynchburg Chapter, Randolph-Macon W oman's College Alumnae Association, held
in Smith Memorial building.
Mrs. Howorth, member of the Mississippi legislature, and of the law firm in Jackson of which her husband is the senior partner, is in Washington to serve as one of three women on the veterans' appeals board. She was for- merly Miss Lucy Somerville of Jackson and is a graduate of the college at which she spoke yesterday. Miss Almeda Garland, pres- ident of the alumnae chapter, presided and the speaker was presented by Mrs. Powell Glass,
chairman of the program committee.
Explaining that she selected her subject from "a remarkable document phrased by one of the earliest Virginians to possess a college education," Mrs. Howorth quoted the Decla- ration of Independence that in order to se- cure to all men their inalienable rights "gov- ernments are instituted among men deriving their powers from the consent of the gov- erned."
She reviewed rapidly the various changes in governmental machinery, pointing out the spread in democratic forms of government and the spread of suffrage and recalling for the benefit of the Randolph-Macon graduates the antipathy of John Randolph to women's appearance in public. " I t is probably just as well," she said, "he cannot see the women members on the floor today and know that not only do the daughters of the college bear- ing his name vote, but also hold offices!"
Forms of government have been modified so as to be responsible to the expressed will of the people, she said, but it does not follow, she maintained, that a democratic government is an actuality.
Never before, Mrs. Howorth said, and "only here in the United States does there ex- ist the machinery for a government responsive to its people's wishes, with a people even in the midst of depression having a relatively
in resources and a common school educatioat least, available to all."
"With such a setting," she said, "the Ameican people shoidd give to the world a demonstration of not only a more perfect uniobut a more perfect government."
That this is not true, Mrs. Howorth sais due to many factors, chief among thocited being the susceptibility of the Americpeople, especially those of the south and weto oratory, to emotional appeals. These clouthe issues at stake, she declared, and said althat to both office-holders and their constuents in the majority of instances, "holdinoffice is simply a means of earning a living"Issues should be considered entirely unrlated to their effect upon individual fortunesMrs. Howorth said, asserting that they nevare and declaring that she used the wo"never" intentionally.
"The supposedly educated people are not uing their education in their political and civactivities," she said, and that until they dthe consent of the governed will not contrgovernment.

Canadian Girl Sings Character
Ellis Todd, who will be remembered for his outstanding performance as "Ko-Ko" in last year's production of the "Mikado," will play the part of Robin, a Baronet of Ruddigore, who disguises himself as a simple country youth to escape a family curse and to win the love of the unsophisticated Rose. Rose will be portrayed by Alice Rowe, who also starred in the "Mikado" as "Yum-Yum."
A third principal of the "Mikado" cast, Gordon Heron, last year's "Lord Poo-Bah," has been chosen as the terrible villain—he will impersonate Sir Despard.
Supporting players are also talented sing- ers, notable among them being John Stark as Richard and Lillian Walker ( B K ) , sister of Eleanore (BK), who sang the title female
role last year, as Hannah.
Gordon Stead as Adam, Jack W orthington
as Sir Roderic, Margaret Atkinson as Mar- garet, Grace Thomson as Ruth, and Kay Coles as Zorah complete the exceptional cast. •^-Vancouver Ncivs-Herald.
Kentucky Mountaineers Given Advantages by Sorority Fund
KENTUCKY MOUNTAINEERS, 150 y e a r s be-
hind the times, are given many modern advantages by the philanthropic fund of the Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority.
The charitable work of this national organi- zation of college women was described last night by Miss Charlotte Buckey Clemson at the local alumna; chapter's founders' day sup- per at the home of Mrs. John S. Boulden. The president of the chapter, Mrs. Roger S. Whiteford, is arranging the observance.
The Alpha Omicron Pi fund provides for the employment of Miss Bland Morrow as di- rector of the social service department of the Frontier Nursing Service of Kentucky. This organization is sponsored by a number of other societies and individuals. D r . John M . Bergland, of Baltimore, has been active in the work.
Miss Morrow used the sorority funds to buy everything from "store teeth" for the mountain mothers to shoes for the barefoot mountain boy.
She has a number of children under her entire care, placing them in foster homes or boarding schools, or giving them partial care, such as the buying of clothing or schoolbooks. She makes arrangements for several handi-

capped children to be sent to schools for the blind and deaf.
Miss Morrow is a member of a committee which arranged for a dental clinic for ten days last summer, in cooperation with local officials and dentists in Hazard, the chief town of Leslie county, where the work is centered. The dentists, preferring to do the work in their own offices, donated their cars and chauf- feurs to take the 250 patients to them. Many of the patients, unaccustomed to riding on anything but a mule, suffered nausea while riding in the automobiles to the offices.
The sorority worker has found that the Kentucky mountaineer is "an exceedingly high type of individual, of original American pio- neer stock and well worth the effort" ex- pended in giving aid. The work is not char- ity, she points out. The mountaineers pay for the services, although the payments often must be long deferred.— The Baltimore Sun.
New System Inaugurated by AOII
-+- T H E FIRST attempt at a system of "club rushing" took place on the University campus on Friday afternoon, when Dean M.L. Bollert entertained at tea in honor of the new Literary Forum. Judge Helen Gregory Mac- Gill addressed the club and their invited guests on "Modern Developments in Juvenile Court Work," after which Miss Bollert, honorary president and critic of the club, spoke on its
aims and objectives.
The new system inaugurated by this affair has caused widespread comment in University circles this week. It is generally felt that it will remove the serious overlapping of club activities, such as has occurred in former years, and that it will enable freshettes to fall

Children's Theatre Presents "SecretGarden"
-4- AMONG ALL THE BOOKS at the disposal of Lincoln children at the city library, there is one whose popularity surpasses that of all others, the delightful story of "The Secret Garden." Indeed, the librarian declares that so great is the demand for this book among the young readers that it is impossible to keep
a copy of it in the library for any length of time.
It is because of this widespread interest in the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett that it has been dramatized by Claire Tree Major and will be brought to the Temple theater stage on February 26, for a morning perform- ance at 9 and an afternoon performance at 2:30.

Louise Phillips is general chairman for both, and according to her latest report the day finally arrived at by all the Indiana chapters is April 6, and the place, the Indian- apolis Athletic Club. Katherine Davis was in town, February 7 and 8. She and Edith An- derson, we understand, had been visiting Val- ley chapters, and stopped in Indianapolis on their way back. Kate saw several of the alumnae here, and helped demolish a birthday
dinner at Katie Schmidt Cox's.

-4- WORD COMES from Rushville that Mildred Riese Haight spent a very busy Christmas season. A pageant, put on in the Methodist
group of people whom Mildred had helped direct, renewed that nice old custom of sing- ing carols throughout the town. We next skip over to Brooklyn and find Mildred Wright using all her spare time to study music in a very serious manner. She is at- tending all sorts of musical concerts and re- views besides keeping busy daytimes at her position with the Brooklyn Edison Company. Marjorie Townsend Bartlett's happiness is quite complete now, for last August 2 brought Bobby, her small son, a new baby sister, who will soon help him in his mischief-making. Chi had a very nice letter from Lorraine Brett, this fall, welcoming any of the girls who happened in New York at any time Lorraine can be reached through the Bur- sar's office at Columbia. Kay Becker and Helen Neubauer are sharing an apartment at 5 Jane Street, New York City. Kay writes that Dot Mapes is still teaching out on Long Island; that Helen Mason is in Montclair, New Jersey; that Mary Keith Jones is in Baltimore, and that Gertrude Koch is living at home in Newark. At the Christinas for- mal I had a long talk with Elsie Strough. who married Barton Morris, last August, and is now living in Vernon, New York. At our last meeting one of the girls said Ruth Thomas can be reached at Minetto, New York, and that Betty Sadelmyer French was living in Binghamton.

-4- OF OUTSTANDING interest to our Boston Alumnae Chapter was the opportunity to hear Mrs. Mary Breckinridge speak. Monday evening, January 14, Mrs. Breckinridge gave a most enlightening talk at the annual meet- ing of the Boston Committee of Frontier Nursing Service. In the attentive audience of doctors, society leaders, and young "debs," some of whom have acted as couriers in Mrs. Breckinridge's service, I saw our alum- nae president, Mary Heald, and our active president, Winona Gould; Margaret Anion (0), who is a member of the Boston Com- mittee; Mrs. Ethel Harkness, June Kelley, and Elizabeth Bright, all of Gamma; Mildred Ward Eldridge, Esther Fowler Schmalz, Dor-
othy Gustafson, Kay Haff Anthony, Gladys Bryant Moore, Beth Ringer, Frances Heald, and Dorothy Buck.
A second event attended by several of our members was the Jackson Alumnae bridge party, given to boost their Alumnae Hall Fund. Esther Fowler Schmalz ('23) was one of the committee in charge; Lorea Jameson ('22) and Olive MacPherson ('32) were mem- bers of an orchestra which gave us music with our bridge. Sally Clark, Mary Arnold, Mildred Eldridge, and I played a "pivoting" game wherein each had her chance to look around the big Westminster room in search of other Alpha O's. There were Mary and '•Fran" Heald, Mildred (Boots) Sproul Mac-

^x. FLORENCE ANDERSON was most active in December in making the Empty Stocking Oub bridge party the triumph that it was. The receipts from this party are used to
bring joy to needy families in the form of toys for children and food for the whole family. It is a large and important annual affair in Madison and its success is due large- ijjy to untiring efforts of such women as Flor- ence. She also assisted generously in the newspaper work connected with the produc- tion of the Empty Stocking Club play, "The Nervous Wreck," the receipts of which are used for the same purpose as the party.

nual husbands' party has been the outstand- ing affair of the group, held hi the president's home, Ruth Snyder Hayward ('26), with twenty-five guests at the buffet supper-bridge. JustawordabouttheannualFounders'Day banquet, at the active chapter, on December 12. The "Iota Echoes from the Past,"in- formal talks by eight alumna? and an active Iota representative, were unusually enjoyable, each girl taking up the thread of the story of the founding of Iota from the local so- rority to the present. Man' Bruner Tehon ('13) was toastmistress. Others who spoke included Margaret Gorham Ebert (ex '13), Atha Wood Fowler ('17), Ruth Percival New- ton ('18), Frances Cottrell ('28), Ruth Sny-

SANTA came in a big way to Jackie and
Bob Armantraut, and Jo Weiler Arman-
trant ('26) back again in Detroit and feeling
much better, bustled with preparations and few days later at a quiet home wedding guests. A note came from Harriett Weston
Ansley ('26) who divided her attention be-
tween holiday festivities and Beta Gamma ac-
tivities. During the busy shopping days, I
caught a glimpse of Emma Jacobs Bergman
('20). Frances Murray Burridgc's ('25)
mother and father spent the holidays with
Marian Murray Elliott ('24) and Schulycr in
Philadelphia. Marian writes that she certain-
ly does enjoy her home and friends. Annette
Burkhardt Brown ('27) breezed into town
twice this fall bringjng greetings from Jean
Greenshield Rex ('27). Annette attended lit-
tle Billy Rex's birthday party. Marian Reich
Bain ('30) put in an appearance on Founders'
Day and was royally welcomed. Christmas
greetings came from Louise Boer ('25) bear-
ing the same postmark so she is still in Grand
Rapids. Blossom Bacon Dick ('31) they say and Jacqueline. Nell Dickinson ('27) spenis all bound up in her housekeeping. Eliza- holidays in Ann Arbor with her brother, beth Cody Breckenridge ('27) is settled in faculty member, and Irene Lutz DunhamFlint and lives very near Elva Langdon Capa- ling (ex '24). Elva seems very busy, and as Janet keeps Betty occupied they see little of each other. Another Detroit visitor was Alice Wessels Burlingame ('28) who came over from Cleveland with her two children for Thanksgiving. She says that Margaret Smith Davis ('27) is living in Cleveland where Gor- don is connected with one of the newspapers. Marjorie Weber Bleaklcy ('27) and Don made their annual fall visit to Iowa. The Burgers, Dorothy Oodle (ex '31) and Franklyn, are still in Ann Arbor. Ann Arbor reminds me of the fact that Margaret Hanselmen Under- wood ('25) and Merle made the longest Christmas trek of any of the gang. They went to Florida for several wreeks. Mary
Howlett Barrett ('23) has been thankful that her father missed meeting her uncle in Lan- sing, where her uncle met his death in the tragedy of the hotel fire. I include this, as there have been so many queries about this tragedy. Mr. Howlett was to have met his brother there, but illness kept him confined to Iiis home. Frances Barrett ('25) is very busy working on the school paper and an annual this year. Sally Bond ('27) is still in Grand Rapids and works for Bell Telephone. During the Christmas season Florence Brady ('335 announced her engagement to Dr. Ralph M. Atherton. The announcement was made at a tea, and the wedding will take place in the near future. Sue Crawford Williams (ex '25) drops in to see Irene Swain C24) frequently. Irene says that Sue's daughter is "most at- tractive." It is reported that Pat Brown Wis- dom ('25) was in Chicago this summer. Ra- dio activity is the center of interest for Vel- ma Leigh Carter ('24) these days. Sally Knox ('29) sent the old year out with a bang in an automobile accident. She is working for the Central Dctroiter. Doris Kuhn Sev- erence ('29) is going visiting in February
C24) is still busy with any number of activties, mainly the University of Michigan Women's Association. Janey Dieterle now has thchickenpox, so Larry O'Bryan Dieterle ('23says she sees a siege ahead as Marty wiprobably be the next one. Faith Dumas (e'28) awoke from a nap to answer my quetion.

Dorothy WyliMartin ('24) and Charles spent Christmawith Marjorie Wylie ('20) and Mrs. Wylie iCalifornia. A Christmas message from Jessamine Gray ('25) brought the news that shwas in Madison, where her husband is aassistant pastor and in charge of student activities. I can alwa3rs depend on news fromRuth Morey Eisisle ('25) at the holiday timShe, Lloyd, and the children are well anbusy with activities in Phoenix.

At 1934, in the First Methodist church, Marsthe tea in honor of our new house-mother, Mrs. Davis, Jane Farmer Hays, Rozella Ross, and Faye Messersmith were in the receiving line. Other alumna? assisted in the dining room. The actives entertained at dinner in honor of Mrs. Drummond, national second vice president, and Mrs. Thomson, both of Evanston, Illinois. The annual Founders' Day banquet was celebrated and Jane Hays gave an instructive talk about our national philan- thropic work. Greencastle alumnae entertained at the Studio Tea Room in honor of the pledges. Mary Garrison Walker, president, Teanette Fisher, pledge supervisor, and M rs. Davis were also guests. Marjorie Mclntyre and Mary Binkley were responsible for the success of the party. The long table was lighted with red tapers and red roses marked each place.

Several times I narrowly es- caped being run down by the carriages and wagons which came careening around corners every few moments.
